38th parallel north

Around the world
Starting at the Prime Meridian
heading eastward, the 38th parallel north passes through:
UN Forces crossing the 38th parallel line in Korea during the Korean War
The Korean Peninsula
first divided along the 38th parallel, later along the demarcation line
After the Armistice agreement
was signed on July 27, 1953, a new line was established to separate North Korea and South Korea. This Military Demarcation Line
is surrounded by a Demilitarized Zone
. The demarcation line crosses the 38th parallel, from the southwest to the northeast. The Demarcation Line is often confused with 38th parallel, but as can be seen in the image of the map, the two are not the same.
